5Bridge Over Troubled Water

The album and its title track topped both the album and single charts in both the US and the UK, simultaneously. Talk about a mega-hit! - PetSounds

650 Ways to Leave Your Lover
7The Boxer

This is the song that made me fall in love with Paul Simon's writing. I'm only 15 years old and hearing this song for the first time as a young child I was simply amazed by his style of writing. It is impossible for me to pick my absolute favorite Paul Simon song because I just love them all. Although I think Cecilia should definitely be on this list, or at least as one of the contenders anyway.

8Mrs. Robinson

Such a catchy classic that everyone sings along to. - PetSounds

10Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard
